North View of Abbotsbury Abbey in the County of Dorset : S. & N. Buck

click here to view a large version in a separate window

The abbey of St Peter at Abbotsbury housed a Benedictine community founded in 1044 by Orc, a house steward of King Cnut. A fascinating and detailed historical note beneath the view explains a little more of the history, including a reference to Tole-Piddle (the now famous Tolpuddle). This print was published in 'Antiquities, or venerable remains of above four hundred castles, monasteries, palaces etc. in England and Wales', published in London between 1726 and 1752. Of curiosity is the depiction, on the lagoon between the mainland and the sea, of numerous swans - Abbotsbury being for centuries renowned for its swannery.
